Unlike any other film, book, or article produced about Mumia Abu-Jamal, "Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary" focuses on his career as a prolific author and broadcaster from Pennsylvania's Death Row. In fact, the film does not deal with Abu-Jamal's case, but rather chronicles his life and work as a journalist and revolutionary - both prior and post incarceration. After Abu-Jamal is convicted for the murder of of Philadelphia patrolman Daniel Faulkner, the story then exposes Abu-Jamal's battles with the American court system to continue his work from prison- a battle he continues to wage to this very day.

10/10 - Very Well Presented And Keeps Your Attention!
All I literally watch are documentaries.... besides a small handful of other shows, Sanford & Son, King Of Queens, Breaking Bad etc. I know a thing or two about documentaries, and I must say Long Distance Revolutionary is one of my favorites! It's obvious that time and organization went into the making of the film. It boggles my mind, and is beyond ridiculous that the ratings would be as low as they currently are. It seems like a concerted effort was made on behalf of the Anti-Mumia camp to "low-vote" this film. Disregard the reviews and decide for yourself if it's your cup of tea or not. 10/10 in my opinion. For the anti-mumia crowd, who naively believes the "official story", remember.... The Best Indicator of A Future Behavior, Is A Past Behavior. There have political prisoners in the past, and will be more in the future. Cointelpro is NOT a conspiracy theory. Use your better judgement, and look outside of the box.
